About Me

I desire to expand the field of classical realism, pushing the boundaries of the craft and technique as it has been taught since modern thought, while also exploring contemporary ideas and concepts relevant to our time. Through the pureness of intelligent drawing, painting and sculpting, my hope is to inherently instill a potency of imagination, consciousness and presence of being. I believe, that it is in deep study and pure awareness where genius and new thought can flourish.

Born in New Mexico, raised in Arizona, and a Colorado girl through-and-through, the Southwest is home. I have always been an artist and designer, and three years ago I began my academic studies in classical drawing and painting. This intensive training has been a dream of mine since studying conceptual art at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I am humbled everyday in my studies and continue to push my craft and concept as I grow as an artist. Please follow me on my journey and reach out if you would like to know more about me, my professional experience, or just desire to connect. 

Thank you for your interest in my work.
